Israel's Palestinian citizens didn't come to Israel - Israel came to them.

I think the first thing that Blair as envoy should do is to travel throughout the occupied Palestinian territories and meet with ordinary people.

Richard Gere Attracts Israelis & Palestinians

Richard Gere came to visit the Middle East a few years ago and attracted more attention than most politicians. He was also careful to say that he was coming to listen, rather than to make statements.

For Iran and Israel, Use the Same Yardstick

Amman, Jordan - I don't accept the logic of this question. Iran's pursuit of nuclear energy is as much her right as that of any other country in the region. Only if two conditions are met would I support a...

Israel Cannot Isolate Itself

Amman, Jordan - Many in the Arab region believe that Hezbollah's Hassan Nasrallah demonstrates political integrity and a willingness to fight for his issues. The end of this conflict will strengthen their beliefs....

A New Balance of Terror?

Amman, Jordan - There is no doubt that the war on Lebanon will make the Middle East and the world much more dangerous. On the day of the ceasefire, which will one day come, Israel will find itself where they...
